The Arthritis Society’s mission is to provide leadership and funding in research, advocacy and solutions to improve the quality of life for the more than 4.6 million Canadians affected by arthritis. Arthritis is a chronic disease that has a devastating impact on the lives of more than 25,000 Islanders (1 in 6 Islanders – one of the highest incidences in Canada), making it one of Prince Edward Island’s most common chronic conditions. The Society empowers people to live their lives to the fullest by fighting the limitations that arthritis can impose on day-to-day life while at the same time, working for an ultimate cure. The PE Division is the leading source of information for Islanders living with arthritis and their families, helping people learn more about their disease and to be better self-managers.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying. Lisa Shannon, A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman
